What is a Sprouts Playgroup?

A Sprouts playgroup is a free opportunity for parents and children ages birth to 5 years to socialize in a fun and developmentally appropriate environment. Playgroups are held at a variety of locations in Kenosha County. Playgroups are led by parents and often include freeplay, story time, music, art, large motor play and a snack.


How often can we come?

Attendance is limited to one 90 minute session each week. Consistent attendance enables the group to get to know one another. Registration is required. Group size is limited and is determined by the size of the location.


Playgroup Schedule

The following is intended as a guideline only.  We strive to be flexible in an effort to meet everyone's needs.

     First 30 minutes        Sign in & free play
     Next 15 minutes        Bathroom & snack
     Next 15 minutes        Story & song
     Next 15 minutes        Table activity
     Last 15 minutes         Large muscle play

It is important that you arrive promptly to enable the children to stay on schedule.


Volunteers

Volunteers are always needed.  There are many tasks that volunteers can help out with, from emptying trash to assisting in the table activity.  Please volunteer to help out in whatever way that you can.
Parent Committee:  This committee is made up of parents from each of our playgroups that discuss ways to improve how SPROUTS functions.  The committee meets once a month.
